State lawmakers say they want more answers about the massive data breach involving millions of Georgia residents. Specifically: What steps organizations that mistakenly got our information took to secure it? From the beginning, the secretary of state has said the data on six million voters is secure. But now lawmakers want proof. … Kemps’ office told Channel 2’s Lori Geary they’re going back to the outlets that received the information to get written assurances no copies of the files exist. That’s not sitting well with Kemp’s critics. “All the pieces of ID theft are in that file. Your name, your birthdate, your Social Security number,” said state Rep. Scott Holcomb.
According to Kemp, an employee who has now been fired released that one file to 12 outlets that receive voter data. “They’re good actors – press, political parties,” Kemp said. “I’m certain our voter information is secure.”
But some lawmakers say they want proof.
Kemp says his office received eight of the 12 discs back and was told by the recipients the other four were destroyed.
But Holcomb told Geary you can’t verify the actual information was destroyed.
